This is an ideal general background text for first-year psychology students, and can be used as a pre-course reader or as the main text for a module such as theoretical foundations of psychology. It provides the essential knowledge needed as an underpinning for further studies in psychology, and will also be useful for students studying psychology as part of a degree in another discipline.
The book is a clear and concise introduction to the subject, and will help students get to grips with difficult concepts, and understand how they are likely to be assessed.
